"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."
- Henry David Thoreau
I made my first sketches in my new small, moleskin sketchbook this evening. They are some planning sketches for a group of 8x10" acrylic paintings I shall be working on. I decided to use my inktense pencils and I plan to add water to the sketches in the morning but thought it would be fun to post the 'dry' version here first before sharing the watered versions...a before and after!
The sketches serve to study composition and colour and are drawn in 10x8 cm boxes to mimic the canvas size
